Month view for calendar on the page
We would like the calendar display apps (events and group calendar) to allow a "month" view. We love the events parts and like that they link to a group calendar but would love to visualize this in a month or week format
We’re actively thinking about how we can better support the desire for a great looking, responsive, wall calendar view. As we solidify our thoughts, we’ll share more.
As we do not use exchange online yet, it is not possible to use the group calender, which is unfortunate..
If possible, it would also be very useful for us to be able te have a "month" view of the calendar.
Google sites had this feature back in 2009/10, a month view embedded with selected calendars feeding into it. I do not understand why MS are not all over this!
Yes, yes, yes - this is an absolute must. You provided something that a great many people use only to, in typical fashion, "upgrade" to something that is supposedly better, but removes vital functionality. Please fix this.
We need this!!! Everyone asks for it. Please make it happen.
There are 2 uservoice requests for this item. I would suggest for everyone to upvote the other uservoice idea "Modern Calendars."
Completely agree with Dan Hancock: "This is a huge flaw in the calendaring functions to not be able to embed a calendar from an O365 group into a SharePoint page. We have had numerous requests for this feature in our entity. Please make this a high priority in development. This needs to include viewing in a standard monthly format."

I totally agree with Stan Snyder and most others on here. If I insert a calendar I need people to see at least a month view and the ability to hook their Outlook up to the calendar if they choose. Exactly how it was in SharePoint 2016 and all previous versions.

Need ability to "publish" a calendar (readable by everyone, so no, an O365 Group calendar is not the "right fit" for this business need). Customers expect a month view (it should look like a calendar!), not the Filmstrip or Compact layout options.
I am trying to help numerous regional teams across my company start using SharePoint Online, but the fact that a well designed calendar is not available is a full stop for many teams. They don't want to regress from the efficient team organization they have developed using SharePoint 2013 with their layered calendars.
The embed 'solution' is not really effective. It leaves a lot of white space below the calendar and if the calendar is placed lower down the page, the calendar title ribbon (that we are trying to hide with the iframe margins) overlaps any text above it.
Are we going to get a more professional solution soon?
I am currently testing office 365 Business for my company. The calendar was a main focus for my Boss and, now, there is a strong possibility we do not make a full transition here because of its absence in the modern site.
OMG, a "Group Calendar" that doesn't LOOK like a calendar?! What is the point?
month or week. anything but large bulky "upcoming"
SO need this! Shared calendar is used to work out when the whole team is free, when ppl are away on holidays, when key dates are. Desparately need this for a homepage view. Cmon Microsoft!
Agreed, events rollup is a great way to consolidate events from multiple sites, but most users want to see events shown on a calendar, not in a tiled list.
We're using a calendar web part to show where the team working from each day. It's a large team so this takes up a lot of real estate on the page. And users are requesting the calendar view so they can quickly look ahead. As a work around, we're giving them a calendar view on a classic page and we'll link to it from the modern page.

Agree with last commenter. This is also holding us up migrating all of our site pages to Modern. Seems like a simple ask, not sure why this option was removed.
Scott Perley commented
This has been a killer for our migration to modern pages. We've been leveraging the calendar webpart on many pages in classic mode and our teams are finding this unacceptable.
OMG what on earth? This is so basic feature yet missing - can't event add simple calendar with month/week view, let ale one that shows... you know.... schedule. The only thing is to add upcoming events, but that's useless - why do you try to reinvent while don't cover the most basic basics? I am so frustrated - there are so mane "attempts" at calendar experience across O365 but frankly it is all just a miserable disappointment for all end users.
We really need a calendar view. The events view in Modern UI just does not fit all uses and embedding the old calendar view as an iframe is very unreliable, subject to breaking and not usable by all users across platforms or with different accessibility needs.
There are a number of other posts requesting this:
- office 365 group calendar web part view
- enable the "Calendar View" available along with "Recurrence" and - calendar app to be displayed in the...
- Month view for calendar on the page
- Events web part
Please add your vote to these too if this is something you want. (Thanks to @Beth Hall for this list.)
Hopefully this will be considered as a feature soon as it seems to be something that a lot of users really need. Thank you.
